Camperdown and District Historical Society Inc. Preserving and promoting Camperdown & district history.

ARRANGEMENTS FOR CAMPERDOWN HERITAGE CENTRE

It has been decided to close the Camperdown Heritage Centre to visitors and volunteers until further notice.

This decision was taken to protect the health of the Camperdown community and our volunteers. Many of us are now in our senior years and therefore at greater risk from the COVID-19 virus.

Much of our research and documentation can be done from home.
Basic research requests may be able to be answered if the information can be found off-site. Click on “Research Facilities” and fill in the relevant form. We will do our best to help.
